The Celebration Mixed Singles Set Play Knockout competition was held at Cabrera LBC between 29th August and 2nd September 2018. This is a slightly different format from normal competitions as it is played in sets i.e. 9 ends are played followed by another 9 ends. If after this the sets are tied then a deciding 3 ends are played to decide the winner. If a competitor wins both sets then they have won the match and deciding ends do not have to be played.

Although there were some very good rounds during the competition the final was between two on form bowlers namely Steve Jackson and Karen Rushton so the spectators were expecting an excellent final and were not disappointed. Karen won the first set by one shot, 6-5. She started the second set the better of the two bowlers but Steve came back and after 8 ends was only 1 shot behind therefore needing 2 on the last end to take the final to a tie break. Sadly for Steve, however, Karen won the last end making the second set score 6-4 and therefore won the final.

Many congratulations to Karen and commiserations to Steve who has only been bowling for a couple of years. Many thanks to all umpires and markers for their time in very hot conditions.
